The Milwaukee Bucks have struggled all season and are sitting in last place in the Central Division at 7-27.  Their most recent loss to the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday by the score of 101-80 dropped the Bucks' to 20 1/2 games behind the Miami Heat in the division.  Power forward Ersan Ilyasova had 20 points and six rebounds in 31 minutes, despite playing with a sore hand. reported a tweet by CF Gardner, who covers the Bucks for the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, on the status of Ilyasova.

The Bucks are unsure at this point whether or not Ilyasova will play in tonight's game against the Chicago Bulls.  Ilyasova has already missed ten games this season. Should he be unable to go against the Bulls, expected Khris Middleton and Ekpe Udoh to get more minutes. Middleton had 10 points and four rebounds, in 31 minutes against the Bulls. Udoh added six rebounds in 16 minutes.

Ilyasova was the Bucks' second round draft pick in 2005.  The sixth-year veteran is averaging 8.9 points on only 38.6 percent shooting.  Ilyasova is coming off a season in which he averaged 13.2 points and 7.1 rebounds per game. In 364 career games, he's averaging 10.4 points and 6.1 rebounds per game.
